KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City police say a person died and a small restaurant was destroyed when a vehicle hit the business.

Police say a Honda clipped a tow truck early Saturday, went out of control and hit the dining room of Freshwater, collapsing the south end of the building.

A passenger in the car died at the scene. Police say the driver was taken into custody.

The Kansas City Star reports Calvin Davis opened the Freshwater restaurant in late April. To save money, he bought chairs at Ikea and painted the restaurant himself.

The 2,000-square-foot restaurant offered a 10-seat chef's table, a main dining room seating 32 and a back bar area seating 10.
